It is the year 2808. Three convicts are recruited as members of the Cyber Police to keep major criminal activity in Oedo (formerly Tokyo) in check. In return, their life sentences will be reduced by a few years for every mission accomplished. However, to ensure that these convicts are doing their job, the police have secured special collars around their necks. If they attempt to remove their collars or fail to meet the time limit of their mission, the collars will self-destruct.
Terrorists have taken control of the city's tallest space-scraper. Not only does the building hold the primary nodes for the city's computer grid and defense systems, but 50,000 people are still trapped inside. In principle, the job is simple: break into the most secure building in the city, find and eliminate the terrorists and rescue the hostages.
A member of the Cyber Police has turned traitor and sold confidential police data to a mysterious customer who could destroy the Cyber Police forever. But before that can happen, the heroes have 24 hours to uncover the plot. The trail leads to an illegal black market dealing in stolen body parts. Goggles is reunited with his ex-partner-in-crime and, together, they find themselves face-to-face with MOLCOS, the military's ultimate killing machine.
One by one genetics researchers are turning up dead and all have suspicious fang wounds on their necks. The most recent victim, Ichiro Edajima, used his own blood to scrawl a cryptic message on the wall and left notes to a very unusual retro-virus on his computer. The trail points to the top of the space elevator, and the cryogenic suspension facility tethered there. But the frozen death of cryogenic sleep may not have any meaning for one of the undead... and vampires can be hungry when they wake up!
